Ok, so, I have here a pretty good value, I paid $35 for a somewhat decent PC in a Xion case, and thats probably only half of what the CPU is worth. Its some Pentium 4 @3.00GHz, hot-swappable IDE slots, SATA, and PCIe x16... The guy who sold it to me said it kept shutting down at random... I think I can see why....
Power LED wire has been cut

The front LEDs and the side fan are put together like this....
This was laying on the bottom of the case too!

There is about 3 Y adapters on one molex cable, with a very cheap PSU at that!

Anyways, I removed these components to repair them and the computer runs fine now, imagine that!

I could not agree more, just finished soldering the fan back to the molex connector it was cut from, I do not know where I am going to stick the other wire for the accent lighting on the front yet, and the Power LED is going to be a huge pain considering that the connector is gone.
